The Weather Channel television network has new on-air educational content for families with children currently staying at home due to school closures. The coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic has forced families across the country to transition to at-home learning, and the network is well-equipped to provide kids with a daily dose of science while their schools and classrooms are closed.

The Weather Channel is dedicating time during each hour of live programming at 50 minutes past the hour to share educational content. Scientific explanations on everything from how raindrops and rainbows form, to why thunder happens, how to stay safe in all kinds of weather, and more. More info can be found at https://weloveweather.tv/for-kids/.

To announce this new educational programming, The Weather Channel released a PSA this morning featuring long-time meteorologists Jim Cantore and Stephanie Abrams.

The Weather Channel will continue its science-based programming to help educate viewers about coronavirus/Covid-19, and that includes a series of 'Myths vs. Facts'.
